How do you feel about all schools being be-lingual? Why not have us all speak the same language, verbally, on an intellectual level?

    Ahh I thought I addressed that? I said it is chosen based on usefulness, popularity and availability of teachers...  It isn't based on numbers of immigrants/speakers of another language in the locality as they would be expected to be bilingual anyway... That doesn't enter into the equation. 

    See I think 'we' would be looking at it in an entirely different way....we wouldn't even be thinking along the lines that they MUST all speak English... that's a given.. We are looking at enhancements to education. What can we do to help students be more well-rounded and to equip them better to make their way in the world.
